We are a little geeky about history in our household, and this has led us to collect all kinds of things...which have been slowly forming into something of a museum! It's a mix-up of natural history and all sorts of bits and bobs
fossils * crystals * shells* beach finds * pottery fragmanets dug up from our garden * glass bottles * insects* owl pellets* an old camera * some old binoculars * a viewmaster plus lots of reels * coins * bones * a tiny lead soldier on his horse from our garden * a cameo bust also dug up from our garden * a really old hand-made shoe found in an abandoned house in a forest in poland * a first aid box from ww2 * replica artefacts from museums / horrible histories live theatre shows * set of original newspapers from famous dates in history * old magazines from the 1960's * metallic objects * an old grain shovel that we found and cleaned up
I am a total total history geek!
Did I ever tell you that we collect postcards and stamps too?
That will have to wait for another post.
What do you like to collect?
